This canoe has upgraded internal felt skid plates. The lead photo is a stock photo. Additional photos are of the actual canoe. Perfect solo for small people. I have sold these to people who are looking to buy a kayak. The Vagabond is lighter, easier to get in and out of and is more efficient than a lot of kayaks. Especially if they have bad knees and have dificulty getting down and up from sitting on their butt. Consider using a kayak paddle with the Vagabond.
Hayward Outfitters is the Factory Outlet Store for Wenonah Canoe. We sell their factory second quality canoes, factory demo's and previous year's overstock. Other than Factory Demo's, these are brand-new canoes; not used, unless stated otherwise. A factory second quality canoe is also called a Blem as it has some type of cosmetic blemish to it. The Blemish is not structural in any way. A factory second quality canoes come with a full factory warranty, less the blem. Every Blem canoe is different. The factory does not tell us what the Blem is. A "NOS" canoe is a brand-new first quality canoe built in a previous year and also comes with a full factory warranty. In the canoe/kayak world, the new year starts on August 1st. These canoes are a great buy if you can put up with a slight imperfection. If you are looking for a perfect, current year, brand-new, first quality canoe, contact a Wenonah Canoe dealer near you.
